I was a little torn on whether to go see Jenn Grant or Amy Helm. I am a big fan of Jenn Grant and because of that I have seen here many times, and usually as many times as she comes to Ottawa in a year. After hearing about some of the issues with getting into Ravenlaw for Wintersleep and seeing the lineup waiting for Ravenlaw already I decided to enter while I can and just stay there for the night. I let logistics make up my mind but it wouldn’t have taken much to convince me to go see Jenn Grant again. As always she put on a wonderfully personable show. I regret nothing!
The act I was very curious about seeing was Elle King. She has such an amazingly powerful voice on her album and I wanted to see what she’d be like live. There was no disappointment, her voice was just as powerful live, impressively so. She mixed in some funny if not a little awkward banter in throughout the night. Her great performance allowed us to forget about the air temperature inside the building but it was a bit of a relief to exit the building after her performance and that had everything to do with the air circulation and not her performance.
After Elle King I went back to the main stage to catch the tail end of the legend that is Van Morrison. Another fine day at CityFolk.
